Square Root of 105
The square root of 105 is the inverse of the square of a number (a) such that a × a = 105. The number 105 have both positive and negative square root. The square root can be a real or imaginary number. We will now find the value of the square root of 105 using the long division method and the approximation method.

What is the Square Root of 105?
 The square root of 105 in decimal form is 10.2469
 The square root of 105 is expressed as √105 in radical form.
 The square root of 105 is expressed as (105)^{1/2} in exponential form.
Is Square Root of 105 Rational or Irrational?
 The square root of 105 is a nonterminating and nonrepeating number.
 Hence, it cannot be represented in the form of p/q where q ≠ 0.
 Therefore, the square root of 105 is an irrational number.
How to Find the Square Root of 105?
We will now find the square root of 105 using the belowgiven methods:
Square Root of 105 Using Approximation Method
 Find two consecutive perfect squares among which 105 lies.
In this case, the numbers are 10 (100) and 11 (121).
So, the whole number part of the square root of 105 is 10  Now, for the decimal part we will use the belowgiven formula:
(Given number – Smaller perfect square) / (Greater perfect square – smaller perfect square)
= (105 – 100)/(121 – 100) = 5/21 = 0.238  Hence, the approx. value of the square root of 105 by the approximation method is 10.238
Square Root of 105 By Long Division
Now we will calculate the square root of 105 by the long division method.
 Start pairing the digits by placing a bar on top of them from the right side of number 105 in pairs of two. Here we will have two pairs 05 and 1(pairing from right).
 Now, find a number(n) whose square is ≤ 1. The value of n will be 1 as 1 × 1 = 1≤ 1.
 We get the quotient (1). Now, by adding divisor n with itself and get the new divisor 2n (2).
 Drag the next pair down (new dividend becomes 005) and find a number (A) such that 2A × A ≤ 5. In this case, the value of A will be 0.
 Now, put a decimal after 5 in the dividend part and after 1 in the quotient part simultaneously. Also, place 3 pairs of zero in the dividend after the decimal (105. 00 00 00) and repeat the above step for the remaining three pairs of zero.
So, we get the value of the square root of √105 = 10.246 by the long division method.

Square Root of 105 Solved Examples

Example 1: What is the square root of √105?
Solution:
The square root of negative numbers is represented by imaginary numbers
Because the square of any positive or negative number is a positive number
So, the square root of √105 is written as √105 i. (where i = √1) 
Example 2: Tom wants to find the value of (3√35/√105). Can you help Tom?
Solution:
We know that √105= √35 × √3
And 3 = √3 × √3
Now (3√35/√105) = (√3 × √3 × √35) / (√35 × √3)
= √3
